A summary is included of the continuing attempts within the EC to draft an acceptable text for a Bankruptcy Convention.;There is little harmonization and limited uniformity between the insolvency laws in neighbouring countries in Europe. In cross-border insolvency cases, the practitioners involved must acquire some understanding of the relevant laws of the countries in which the assets and liabilities are to be found.;Bankers, lawyers accountants and business people engaged in trade and financial activities in Europe should find assistance in this book. However, readers should be circumspect in any attempt to apply the contents to the needs of a particular case or set of circumstances without referral for specific advice to the relevant contributor for the country concerned.
